Dick Figures The Movie - Onion Skinning

DFTM_Day7_sm No, Red is not in "Bullet Time." When animating, it's of vital importance to see the drawings you've just done to make sure the continuing movement is correct. Back in the day, traditional animators would put several pages of drawings between their fingers and "roll" them, making a mini-flipbook of their animations. Those poor bastards. Now, with Flash, we use the "Onion Skin" feature which allows our animators to see their previous keyframes with just the press of a button.
